Apple Juice, Arsenic, and Dr. Oz

I am sure most parents have heard of Dr. Oz’s claims this week that many of the brands of apple juice, tested by a lab that he hired, had elevated levels of arsenic. Doing a quick Google search, I found other reports from a couple of months ago about arsenic in Apple juice such as this one: Food and Water watch I have not verified some of the claims in this particular article (and I should since the organization that published is probably a bit biased), but it seems crazy that we import two thirds of Apple juice from China. If that’s really true, we need to change our food import policies as quickly as we can. It makes no sense to import such a large amount of one food type that can be easily grown here for many reasons.
